I’ve done a few things this morning that I feel good about:
2. I read about charity in family relations.
Elder Eyring said this: “We must find a way to lead people to a faith that they can replace their natural self-interest with deep and lasting feelings of charity. … With that change, and only then, will people be able to make the hourly unselfish sacrifices necessary for a happy marriage and family life—and do it with a smile.”
I went on to read: “Elder Scott affirmed during his October 2014 general conference address that consistent prayer, daily scripture study, weekly family home evening, and temple attendance are tools our Father in Heaven has given us and will strengthen marriages and homes when they become “simple, fundamental daily habits.” He promised: “As you dedicate time every day, personally and with your family, to the study of God’s word, peace will prevail in your life. … It will come from within your home, from within your family, from within your own heart.””
I’m grateful for my family and for the love I feel for them. I want to have charity and center my life on the teachings of Jesus Christ.
I want to continue to submit my will to God and not get casual in my recovery. Today is day 408 in recovery. Today, or around today, is the day I came clean with Becky about my online relationship. It’s been really hard for her this morning and I’m not sure what to do.
I want to help her. I want to be for her what she needs me to be. I want to help the kids too.
I’m grateful for repentance and for the Atonement that has allowed me to turn my life and will over to God. I want this to continue but know I can only do this one day at a time.
I am glad that today I am feeling better.
I look forward to a day in recovery.
